The Spirits Tested, Overcome
This I know, and know full well:
I am from God, I am of God, I am a
Child of God.
The evils and the lessenings are overcome.
The Adam is in me yet
and yet I will not fall;
I set aside the lustful temptation.
Christ is in me,
and temptations fail, evil forces fail.
I shall not stand alone; I am in the Communion.
I stand bathed in the grace of God,
Renewed in a place safe and secure–new.
I leave my pride, and then
I will live by the promise of God,
Rich in fruits,
Rich in the Spirit.
Great is He that is in me.
Great is the Word.
Great is the light.
Joy in the Word!
Fruits are sweet, fresh, vital.
Fruits of the Spirit–Alive!
